A Grade II* character mews house converted from the medieval Apley Castle ruins
Situated next to Apley Woods; a 56 acre landscaped site offering woodland walks, The Solar forms part of a unique complex that was built from the medieval ruins of Apley Castle, at the end of a no through road in the former grounds of the old Apley Estate.
The nearby woods originally formed part of the Georgian Apley Castle grounds, have been restored and offer a pleasant place to walk.

Telford with its business and shopping centre is nearby, with further shopping and leisure facilities in Shrewsbury & Newport. The M54 is a short distance away, giving easy access to Shrewsbury, Birmingham and Midland business centres. Wolverhampton also provides a direct train service to London.
